Actually, you should leave your wastegate control in the manifold because it more accurate reflects what the engine is needed. Your BOV definately needs to be tapped before the throttle plate becaues that's where the transients matter. (SNIP) The only other thing that could wear out the turbo quickly is if you aren't running a BOV, and the blades will get quite a nasty shock when that 15lb transient hits the compressor wheel.
I think you're onto something here. I think IARS has a more serious BOV issue that he's masking by playing with the wastegate lines.
